Following on from my original post on the application I have been developing to simply manage my files, I have completed BETA 1 of my application currently named DumpIT!


From original post:

The application looks at a ‘dump’ directory, a directory containing files that are currently being worked on. Files are saved in this directory with a ‘tag’, a prefix before the filename terminated with a ‘.’ delimeter.For example as the image above shows I may have two files: Assignments.Assignment1.txt and Images.image1.tiff. When the ‘DumpIT!’ application is run it will create two new folders in the specified source directory called Assignments and Images. The two files will then be moved into these directorys and their ‘tag’ will be removed. They now exist as Assignment1.txt in Assignments and image1.tiff in Images.

This allows for much easier saving of files; write in the tag of where they should be sent and when the application is run (either manually or on computer shutdown/start up) the files are organised.

If no tag is supplied such as a file with the filename ‘notes.txt’ it will simply be moved to the destination directory with no folder created.

The source and destination folders are taken as command line parameters.

All I have left to do is create a simple installer, and fix any bugs my beta testers find.

If anyone is interested in testing just comment 🙂
